Town of McIntosh
Relax in the Quiet of Horse Country
McIntosh 1890s Festival
It’s not often that such a small town develops such a big annual event. Every fall, craft seekers descend on this lovely burg for a day of Old Florida fun, including live music (country, bluegrass, gospel and other Americana styles), most of which is performed on the porch of the Community Center. Over 280 vendors form row after row of white-tented booths offering food and drink, arts, crafts, antiques and more. Set in a spacious park with huge live oaks providing ambience (and shade), this free event invites visitors to relax and roam without a care. The 2021 fest is on Saturday, Nov. 6.
A Great Town for Antiquing
Clustered within a block-and-half along U.S Highway 441 in McIntosh are three extremely rustic antique shops where enthusiasts can while away the hours. Old Tyme Florida is located in a huge old building, and features an ever-changing inventory. Before entering, make sure you take a picture beside the blue buggy on the porch! Gina’s Treasures & Antiques, set in a smaller storefront, has more of a thrift-store feel. Antiquers are sure to find unique items, along with some bargains too.
